arrangement for young string players and optional
ship's bell portrays an imaginary voyage,
which includes "gummery bread,"
a "rubagub tree," and "Binnacle-bats"
wearing "waterproof hats." All instruments
stay in first position and only violin 1 uses
the "low second finger." The homophonic
texture and straightforward rhythms and harmonies
let students focus on style and musicianship.
Students will also develop various articulations
(staccato, accent, pizzicato) and watching
skills (fermata, ritardando, tempo
changes, and a caesura). Excellent
writing by an excellent teacher!
